SHEFFIELD Eagles will be losing winger Garry Lo as he moves to Super League side Castleford Tigers for next season.

Lo has signed a two year deal with the Tigers, with the club having the option of a third year, it has also been agreed between the two clubs that when Lo is not required by the Super League outfit he may return to the Eagles on loan.

Lo played 28 times scoring 33 tries in 2017 for the Eagles, he joined the Kingstone Press Championship side back in 2016, and has played 44 times, scoring 45 tries in that time.

The 23 year old said of his move: “I’m speechless! To be given this opportunity is a dream come true for me. To get the chance to test myself at the highest level in Super League is so exciting and I can’t wait to join the boys soon for pre-season training.

“I’d like to thank everyone at the Eagles from the supporters, to players, to the staff and especially Tubbs (Mark Aston) who gave me the opportunity to come to the UK.”

Tigers head coach Daryl Powell said on his new player: “Garry Lo has been a really exciting player for Sheffield over the last two years. I’ve had a good look at him and I think he will fit perfectly into the way that we play. He’s an exciting player, he’s very robust and a strong ball carrier who’s got an ability to pass the ball as well, so I think he’ll be a very exciting player to add into what we have already got.”
